Welcome to Nexmo Developer

We are improving our Documentation, API references, learning resources & tooling to help you more effectively use our services. We want to help you find everything you need to integrate Nexmo APIs into your code.

As we start this transition, we’d love to hear from you with thoughts & suggestions. If you’ve got something, positive or negative, to tell us, please tell us using the feedback tool at the bottom of each guide or file an issue on GitHub. - Nexmo

Buy a number

To make and receive calls with the Voice API, and to receive messages using the SMS API, you need to buy a number to use with the API.

You can purchase numbers using the Dashboard in the Your Numbers  section, or programatically.
